The glorious era of the advanced field of aerial work, commonly called powder mills, essentially ended with the Velvet Revolution. Throughout our economy, completely different rules of management and planning, financing, pricing policies have occurred, and this sector has lost its economic substance.
Anyone who smells of or cares about flying knows that flying like a powderman meant flying in conditions that are forbidden for any other air traffic. Altitude several meters above the surface, flight speed almost to a minimum, cargo-laden aircraft, flight requiring maximum concentration on the surrounding terrain, flight obstacles, wind force and direction, monitoring in how much and in what space and where the pilot drops his load of chemicals, a considerable number takeoffs and landings in field conditions every day, etc. No wonder there were accidents in such conditions. The pilots did not yet have cell phones, the radio connection was imperfect, if at all. The crashed pilot fought in the wreckage for life without help, alone and for a long time.
Many pilots have paid the highest tax for their passion to fly, they deserve honor and memory. But it also belongs to the large number of powder pilots who were more fortunate.
The book is not only a reminder of the powderman, but also provides an overview of the development of the aerial work industry, the development of aircraft used in our country and the issue of flying for agricultural and forestry purposes.
